Looking for a fun and creative alternative for Christmas gifts this year? These DIY Christmas ornaments are just the thing you’ve been looking for!
Christmas is one of our favorite holidays of the year! It’s filled with family, love, and great food. Once I become a Mom I realized how truly special Christmas really is. The feeling of being surrounded by loved ones during the holidays is priceless. Of course Christmas is also about gift giving but if you have a big family like us it can get quite expensive. After our first joint Christmas together we had to come up with a cost effective gift to give our loved ones.
These DIY Christmas ornaments are Tatiana and I’s absolute favorite thing to make! We love picking out which picture goes inside and wrapping them up, only to see a smile on everyone’s face when they see what’s inside. Every year we switch it up with a new photo of our family and a fun Christmas phrase. All of the supplies cost less than $5. They’re super simple to make and making these ornaments together is one of our Christmas traditions.
